Getting ready for a full day around town? Brunch is a must when you are in St. John’s. There may not be enough days in the week to visit each of these brunch spots but with some offering all day breakfast why not have brunch for breakfast and dinner.

Please be sure to call ahead for reservations and to ask about any restrictions or guidelines to be aware of during COVID-19.

Experience new flavours as well as some old favourites at the Green Door, where sharing is a part of the menu. Menu items are inspired by fare from all over the world, and where possible ingredients are sourced locally. Their philosophy is some dishes are served on small plates so you can try several, but some come on larger platters designed for sharing.

Their brunch menu, served Saturday and Sunday 11:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. offers a Spanish influence including their Trinxat and eggs which is a traditional Spanish potato cake with cabbage and bacon.
